    In the sea of first world problems, I have one that I want to crowd-source. I need a better gym playlist. I dont like listening to the same things over and over and since my phone shit the bed six months ago, I lost most of the stuff I had. Im slowing accumulating music again through Apple Music (I know, Spotify is better). What would be must-have songs for a workout list? Heres what I have so far -

    Alice in Chains - Man in the Box
    Alice in Chains - No Excuses
    Awolnation - Sail
    J. Cole - Workout
    Killswitch Engage - The End of Heartache
    Living Colour - Cult of Personality
    The Roots - The Fire
    Shinedown - Fly From the Inside
    Bush - The Sound of Winter
    Disturbed - Land of Confusion
    Rage Against the Machine - Renegades of Funk
    Xecutioners - Its Going Down
    Sound Garden - Burden in My Hand
    Marilyn Manson - Tainted Love
    Kanye West - Black Skinhead
    Beastie Boys - Sabotage
    Blink 182 - Dammit
    Deftones - My Own Summer
    Deftones - Minerva

    Focus: Add to it or just give your ideal workout list.

    Alt Focus: What other themed playlist do you have? Do you have a secret one that you would be embarrassed by if your friends found out? To my Tool Tunes Playlist (name stolen from Bald Bryan of ACS), I just added Janet Jackson - Runaway.

    Focus: Needs more White Zombie. Or just all White Zombie.

    Alt-Focus: Maybe it wasn't a theme per se but I'm pretty sure some of my buddies would give me shit for blasting Florence Welch all of last night.

    I keep a lot of Bone Thugs on my gym playlist. (Fun racist side note: I text my black friend Andre the youtube link to "First of da month" every first of the month.)

    Awolnation is a hugely underrated band in my opinion and pretty much anything off Megalithic Symphony is great to work out to. Especially "wake up" and "not your fault".

    The Mortal Kombat song is great for cardio. Don't act like you don't know it.
    All of Alice in Chains, Dirt.
    Michael Jackson's Dangerous album has a ton of good shit and its not like his older, older stuff.
    Older Michael Jackson shit: Billy Jean and the like
    Muse: Supermassive Blackhole, Starlight, Map of the Problematique, Uprising, Resistance, Undisclosed Desires.
    NIN: whatever songs you want
    Ginuwine: Pony
    Bootsy Collins: I'd rather be with you

    Guilty pleasure songs for the gym:
    Katy Perry: Dark Horse
    Human League: Don't you want me
    Halestorn: Bad Romance(Lady Gaga cover)

    Just to name a few...

    Don't judge me on this, but when I was running a half marathon in Vegas in 2013 and was gassing out towards the end. Then they started blaring The Pointer Sister's "Neutron Dance" over the speakers, and wow. That song will pick you up out of the depths of cardio hell.

    You're on the right track, but I'll suggest it's best if we go back in time a few years...



    Another album that is solid from start to finish, and really good for the gym.



    I especially like Appetite for Destruction for running and cycling.

    This might seem like stereotypical "meathead" music, but basically anything by Godsmack is great for working out.

    I won't bother listing individual songs (unless you want me to), but just about anything in the "Stoner Rock" genre is also good: Monster Magnet, Clutch, The Sword, Kyuss, etc.

    And I wholeheartedly agree with everyone who said White Zombie.

    I love making playlists. I really miss the art of creating mixes to trade with your friends/crushes/boyfriends. Making a playlist for someone is just not the same.

    Anyway, my most listened to themed playlist is my Bad Bitch playlist, which of course features the Holy Bad Bitch Trinity of Beyonce, Nicki, and Rihanna. It also includes ladies like Azaelia Banks, Peaches, Sleigh Bells, Gossip, Florence and the Machine, Phantogram, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Meg Myers, Grimes, Banks, Santigold, Elliphant, and a bunch of other people that make hard hitting, shit-kicking music to strut to. (It was meant to be all ladies, at least, but I threw in some Kanye because it's hard for his egomania not to rub off on you a little when you listen to him.) I listen to it whenever I need to feel confident or powerful or aggressive and it. fucking. WORKS.

    On the opposite side of that, I have a This is The Scene In The Movie Where the Protagonist Takes a Long Walk and Thinks About Some Shit playlist, which is mostly various boys with their guitars and girls with their pianos. I listen to it when I'm talking a walk or staring contemplatively out of the subway window and thinking about shit.

    I also have seasonal playlists. There are songs that are perfect for when it's just becoming spring (light and happy), and songs that are perfect for summer (upbeat, with a higher percentage of guilty pleasures), and songs that are perfect for fall (edgier, with a higher percentage of Bands You've Probably Never Heard Of).

    For an alt-alt focus: I do not have a playlist full of sad songs to listen to when I feel sad. I've never gotten the compulsion. Maybe I'd listen to my Protagonist playlist during these times instead, but I certainly don't want to be bombarded with songs that bring me even further down and make me cry when I'm already bummed out. And I love crying! But i don't get it.

    Listen to it before I go on every run (and yes, I know it was mentioned once on the TMMB/RMMB, but I was listening to it before then hipsters!)
